I have been working at Corrections Corporation of America full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Longevity and leading position in the industry. Hardworking people who begin with the best intentions but become jaded or just getting by after years of not getting rewarded.

Cons

Good ole boys network based on who you know, not what you know. Lots of talk about employee engagement and liking each other for who we all are, but not enough evidence to back up the chatter. Low pay in general. Diminishing benefits.

    I worked at Corrections Corporation of America full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with who cared about the jobs they were trying to do.

    Cons

    lack of confidentiality and lots of gossiping from upper management, Lousy orientation and no training for job specific tasks, lack of proper communication to all who needed to know. Upper management was in your personal business too often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To corporate - pay attention to what your facility employees are telling you. They don't contact you to waste your time - there are big problems.
